Boy Meets World: Follow-Up TV Series in the Works

boy meets world new tv seriesIt may be time to check in to see how Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel) are doing from Boy Meets World. TVLine reports that the Disney Channel is considering doing a follow up TV series.

The new project is tentatively titled Girl Meets World and would revolve around the pre-teen offspring of Cory and Topanga. The characters were married at the end of the ABC TV show and they moved to New York so that Topanga could pursue her dream of becoming a lawyer.

Disney is talking to Savage and Fishel about reprising their roles. There’s been no mention about any of the other actors joining the project but one would guess they might be at least offered guest spots. It’s hard to imagine Shawn (Ryder Strong), Eric (Will Friedle), or Mister Feeny (William Daniels) being too far away from the high school sweethearts.

Boy Meets World ran for seven seasons on the alphabet network and ended in May 2000. It was recently announced that a reunion of the cast and crew would be held as part of the ATX Television Festival in Austin next June. It appears that they may have a lot to talk about.

What do you think? Would you like to see a follow up to Boy Meets World? Which characters would you like to see return?

    Growing old really…. really…. sucks and truly makes you have a cynical outlook on life, and when have great shows like Boy Meets World being trampled on by today’s creators because they can’t think up of an original idea it only further worsens that outlook.

    thats soooo awesome i almost jumped out of my chair when i saw that article and i was like soooooo excited to see it……yes they have to do it right or it will turn into a horrible reunion show that will get cancelled in the first three episodes like a lot of shows…they have to order like 20 episodes per season…they should totally have feeny come back…hes on greys anatomy right now but guest spots heck yeah…and will friedel i last saw him in a abc family movie and who does voiceovers because he has an awesome voice (yeah), and rider strong is always playing in some post apocalyptic movie or some b- horror movie and he always gets killed,….and ben savage i last saw him on an episode of bones he looks the same just a a little older…angela should come back too im not sure whats shes doing…i think a couple of tv movies…but she could come back…bring back jack….who guest starred last on his real life brother joey lawrence’s tv show “melissa and joey” bring em all back…if to do nothing more than pop in every so often….but the big question is will cory and topanga still have the chemistry they had when we left them

    Very skeptical about this because Disney Channel probably won’t even address some of the more important themes that Boy Meets World did. They may just create a clone of all their other shows that only emphasize being famous.

    I AM SOOOOOOO EXCITED ABOUT THIS!!!! I wish just about everyone would come back for a modern family meets how I met your mother type deal and run forever. Now Boy Meets World needs to go on Netflix!!!

    With reruns airing on ABC Family, my kids have already fallen in love with these characters. If they can do it right, this show could really be a hit. I know Danielle has been busy since the show ended. But I have not seen either Savage brother in years. I enjoyed several shows that did this in the past, but some of there were simply not done right. If done wrong this show will be canceled faster than you can say “Mr. Feeny”.
